Love

Dave and Judy have shown us that you can find love at any age. The couple met at our community, and Dave proposed on Valentine’s Day. Their story was shared on Facebook, and the local news picked up their proposal. We are looking forward to watching them make more memories at Heritage Woods.

Compassion

When Diana moved to Heritage Woods, she kept to herself until our nursing team realized her medication dosage was off. A call to Diana’s doctor changed everything. Now, Diana is the chairperson for our resident council, a member of our bell choir and a regular at our exercise classes. She loves sharing her light with the world.

Dignity

Darlene has always been an independent person, and it was important for her to maintain that independence at Heritage Woods. She has made our community her home and stays busy by writing articles for our newsletter, participating in the activities we offer and spending time with her friends here.
